Groove's Faves: "The Origin of Celsius" by Kupperberg, Staton, and Chiarmonte

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Y'know, when Ol' Groove was working on last week's Metal Men post, something in the back of my mind kept naggin' at me. Turns out, my brain was trying to tell the rest of me that I'd done a post on DC's 1977 Doom Patrol revamp in Showcase #94 back in August (you can read it here)--and then never followed up with another DP post! Well, it's time t'fix that! Here's Paul (Life With Archie, Charlton Arrow) Kupperberg and Joe (Dick Tracy, E-Man) Staton (with inker Frank Chiarmonte) with the second part of their Doom Patrol revival! From Showcase #95 (July 1977), mysteries deepen and some are solved (well, sorta) in "The Origin of Celsius"!

  1. Yep, like I said in the comments to that earlier post, I really liked this new team. Also, as far as I was concerned, Staton's art certainly didn't hurt.

  2. Frank Chiaramonte seemed to be everywhere in the Groovy Age, going back and forth between Marvel and DC.
